    Hello,

    I'm in the process of building a tool that will be similar to Instagress but for Pinterest. We already have the basic features running - liking pins, repinning, following users and boards, commenting pins and inviting users to your group boards.

    I'm looking for more complex techniques (board creation, re-uploading pins, etc) that have worked for you in order to generate traffic to your websites.

    Any comment will be welcome! I have experience working with brands, but not with people that are using Pinterest as a traffic generation method and your input would be very helpful.

    If anyone wants to test the tool, please send me a PM (not sure if I would be able to post the URL here).

    Thanks!

    Is it a web based product (like instagress)? Will you support proxies? The secret sauce is in the scheduling of activities and adding randomness to those activities in order to avoid detection.

    Yes, it will be web based. We will work on the randomness, proxies will be supported but we will be providing them if the user pays... just like Instagress - they use proxies but the end user doesn't have to care about that.

    Thanks for the input! Appreciate it.

    I would love an option to fetch data from a Pinterest user, like their pins most repined/liked.
    Also to find boards within a specific niche with X followers and active (that each pins must have a min. of 10 repins, something like that)
    That would be awesome

    Accept incoming board invites, ability to pin in random boards of same category.
    Pause the action if error occurs more than twice or thrice

    Just added un-inviting - when you create a group board, do you normally unininvite the people or leave them there with the option to post?

    I would love to test this for my companys page. We have been using instagress for a while now and have figured out how to get the most out of it getting our ig account up to 27.5k followers in about 9 months.

    I love the site you created and service is spot on, basically Instagress for Pinterest which is really impressive...For some reason I'm getting a blank page when I go on the site now, everything is still going how I set it up, but I can't access my admin..Anyway, will definitely pay monthly for this. I guess the only feature you're missing is the ability to target followers of users, a lot of time its tough to target hashtags as the users using them aren't quality leads so the option to target the follower of someone within your niche is ideal....

    Maybe a feature that requests to post on others boards would be cool. you could set requirements for the boards you request, like how many followers they have, pins, boards etc. so you can control who you request.

    I suppose you could get more specific with the targeting that you currently have now as well like Instagress does, you could choose the age of the content you like/comment, the following a user has etc. anything to zone in on the target.

    What is really needed is a Pinterest to WP RSS posting loop. Pinterest "explore" (keyword) RSS, pull full size image, make unique, post to WP, pull WP rss and repost to Pinterest.

    @Maverickmay Thanks for the ideas! We will be adding the option to target another user's followers for sure. How does one request to post in another board? As far as I know it's generally done via e-mail.

    @dandan594594 I see... interesting! Do you generate traffic this way?

    @lazydesigner soon! :p

    OP, I think the best feature you could develop is Private Messages.

    Please, send me the beta version.
